January 12, 2021

Today is the last day for tribal governments and tribally designated housing entities (TDHE) to apply for funds from the Emergency Rental Assistance Program established by the recently passed COVID-19 stimulus legislation. 


The Emergency Rental Assistance Program makes $25 billion available directly to states, territories, local governments, and Indian tribes to assist households who are unable to pay rent and utility bills due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Of that amount, $800 million is set aside for tribal governments and TDHEs.


Eligible grantees must provide complete information to Treasury by 11:59 PM EST today, January 12, 2021, to ensure receipt of an Emergency Rental Assistance payment. Information can be submitted here.  



On Thursday, January 14, 2021 from 2:30-4:00 PM EST The U.S. Department of the Treasury will hold a Tribal Consultation Listening Session regarding tribal governments and TDHE participation in the Emergency Rental Assistance Program. 


The Department of the Treasury welcomes input from primary tribal leaders or their designees on this program, specifically on reporting requirements, eligibility determinations, and assistance documentation.
